Review: I saw this book on display in the library and had heard about it but never picked it up…so I picked it up. Flipping through I spotted a drink recipe for Rye and Prejudice
3 ounces grape fruit juice
1 1/2 ounces rye whiskey
Pour the ingredients over ice in a rocks glass, sitting like a complicated heart. We hold no prejudice against marrying up, ladies, but you don’t need a castle (or a king) to be a queen.
The book is full of these fun recipes and each drink comes with a witty description of the book.
